Amazing progress Di and with a complete rebuild to boot!

I'm half way through year 3 and still mucking around with electrickery and only 50% ballasted.  :-[

Brilliant job.

Looking forward to the next update.

I thought a change of pace was needed so I thought I would run freight for a change.

Not meant as a criticism, but the barrier wagons on the oil tanks should be Vacuum fitted, preferably long wheel base.

Regards,

Alex

First time I've checked in on Plymbridge for a while. Amazing progress! As Dannyboy says, you're putting a lot of us to shame!  :-[

A little more work on the East end of Plymbridge, a little more grass, a few trees and a industrial back scene.

I have been busy again adding to the back scene and adding one of Metcalfe's new generation laser cut kits, the station canopy, to Plymbridge Stations up platform. The new Metcalfe's kits are very much improved over the earlier ones and come with some rather useful building aids as part of the kit which in this case consist of a pre cut jig for the assembly of the 3 part leg units and a former to aid in the joining of the 4 sub sections together squarely. These simple aids are very efficient and simplify the construction process reducing the need for 3 hands at times.  :)
